Early Parenting Workshops

Many parents cite that they feel confused, frustrated and disempowered by the myriad of conflicting advice they receive. Vanessa’s insightful, trustworthy and non-judgmental parenting workshops, allow you to leave those worries behind and feel confident to make informed parenting decisions that feel right for you.

Delivered to businesses, private groups and on a 1-1 basis, topics include looking after a baby and staying calm (!), successful breastfeeding, sleep solutions and introducing solid foods.
